Here we go !!!

password for those of you who need it: fat finger


Get off your fucking asses and play in OUR bracket. I know, I know, you're already signed up for 12 other brackets, but I don't give a shit.

I see a few people have re-signed for the Bored's Bracket Thingy already. You are angels.

Invite your friends and family. Only 1 entry per person.

We have to make sure that we kick travis's ass again this year.

If you don't join, I'm coming to your house and fuck you up !!!

Ace

BTW: Hope everyone is well and life is treating you extremely well. I'm finally an empty nester and a father-in-law (all of this has transpired in the last year).

Regardless of your bracket choices, the best player names in the tournament have to be Kobe Buffalomeat, Marmaduke Trebilcock, Chardonnay Pantastico, and Quindarious Monday

I gotta unload a couple things that are cluttering up my leisure time. TifaniBrandi missed the deadline and is suffering the consequences. SteelersFan keeps saying stuff like, "Tifani picked [BigUpsetLoser] Villanova."

He's got the Zags quite a ways in, but not winning it all: "Always pick Duke." Like it's a rule . . .

I'm out! Neither of my ESPN brackets survived the first weekend. Louisville just fell to Michigan, which killed my chances of repeating as the champion of my own tournament.

As a fan of both Louisville and Kentucky, thank you for dropping the Blue Devils.

For the record I enrolled at South Carolina in the fall of 73, The Marquette win was the first NCAA tourney win for the Gamecocks since that time.

Quote:
Before this weekend, the last time South Carolina won an NCAA tournament game, Mike Dunleavy scored 11 points. Yes, I know Mike Dunleavy went to Duke — I’m talking about his dad, who was a freshman guard on the 1972–73 Gamecocks team.

Yeah, but how many of the Sweet Sixteen have relatives of yours playing for them?

Congratulations to March Sadness, winner of the Bored Buddy Bracket Thingy.

March Sadness is a friend of my youngest son.

FWIW: Had Zaga won last night, my oldest son would have been the winner.

Now, everyone can get back to work.

And for Skippy? Go Fuck yourself.

:D

I guess I lost on the tie-breaker. How could both teams miss so many shots?

The bracket standings do show it as a tie for 1st.
